Las Vegas Estate Planning Attorney FAQs


Why Should I Plan My Estate?

Estate planning allows individuals to decide who will benefit from their estate, and to what extent, after you’ve passed away. Estate planning also ensures your estate will not be diminished or destroyed by taxes imposed on the transfer of your assets at death.

What Is An Estate?

An “estate” consists of all of the property you own at death before it is distributed by a will, trust, or intestacy laws. An estate may contain both real property (real estate, including primary residences and investment properties) and personal property (bank accounts, jewelry, automobiles, etc…).

Do I Need To Have A Will?

Not necessarily. There is no law that states you must complete a will. In most cases, however, it is wise to make some type of plan pertaining to the disbursement of your assets and finances after you die. If you pass away without creating a will, you will not have a final say in how your personal belongings are distributed. A will acts as a safeguard in allocating who receives what, how much they receive, and when they receive it.

What Happens If You Die Without A Will?

A person who passes away without a will is referred to as intestate. Each state has its own set of intestacy laws that make provisions for how a deceased person’s assets should be distributed should they pass without a will. Read more about Nevada’s Intestate Laws Here.

What Is Probate?

Probate is a process used by the courts to enforce the provisions of a will, along with addressing any disputes related to a descendent’s estate. After a person dies, the person identified in his or her will as the “executor” will file all applicable paperwork with the courts to inform the state of the death. If no executor is named in a will, the State will appoint an individual, most likely the next of kin. Once appointed and the court’s have been notified, the executor is tasked with providing the courts an inventory of the deceased’s assets and liabilities, as well as any beneficiaries outlined in the will. A beneficiary is a person who is provided with a gift in the will.
